DoD extends Technology Innovation Discovery Event 2023 due date

On May 31, the Department of Defense (DoD) extended the due date for the Technology Innovation Discovery Event 2023: Anticipating Technological Surprise. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on June 16.

The purpose of this request for information (RFI) is to identify technologies from private industry, government research and development (R&D) organizations, and academia for inclusion in Technology Innovation Discovery Event (TIDE) 2023.  TIDE 2023 is invitation-only, and structured similarly to a trade show with limited opportunities for showcasing functioning prototypes.

The DoD and U.S. interagency partners use TIDE to gain situational awareness and understanding of the state-of-play of innovative technologies in a specified focus area to inform decision-making that enhances strategic and operational capabilities.  TIDE 2023 seeks to discover emerging capabilities that may produce surprising impacts during future conflicts.  This includes the use of existing commercial technologies that may yield unanticipated military utility through technical modifications or unique applications.  Technological surprise may result from producing an impactful or novel capability, an additive technology that enables a capability to function at a previously unseen scale or speed, or a disruptive countermeasure that neutralizes existing military technologies or capabilities.

The Office of Innovation and Modernization (I&M), within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)), sponsors and coordinates the Thunderstorm event series, including TIDE.

TIDE 2023 will take place on 30 August 2023 at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. Interested parties are welcome to submit their applications for the TIDE 2023 event by following the instructions and guidance provided in the following sections.

The application deadline is 5:00 PM EDT on 16 June 2023.
